maekchu (2140) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 24, 2012
Can. Fresh, grassy, slightly nutty aroma. Cloudy pale yellow, no visible carbonation, and a very slight hint of a head spread out. Grassy, pils-like flavor with a dull bitterness. Thin body, not a lot to grab onto. Pleasant enough, but could probably use a little more bittering.

anders37 (16719) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2011
Can. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity grainy and slightly grassy aroma. Fruity grainy flavor with some bitterness. Has a sweetish malty grainy finish.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Can 330ml. Very good for a pilsener. Aroma has butter, leaves, and a hint of citrus. Taste has a sweet start, with a bitter finish. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Dark yellow, with a persistent head.

Theis (13410) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2009
Can at Hotel Okuyumoto, Hakone, Room 408 – shared with Mette. Candy, sweetness, bitterness, zesty, honey, cardboard boks, tartness, not fresh at all, light malty. Unpleasant.

omhper (19381) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2009
Canned at Shinshu Osake Mura (Nagano Sake Village), Tokyo. Clear golden, creamy head. Fruity and grainy, slim and dry. Light grassy hops leads it the strightest way to a salty bitterish finish.

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2009
Pale colored. Fruity, malty flavor. Slightly grassy and decently balanced. I find this can be quite variable. At its best, it is a light, fruity, citrusy, flavorful pils, almost ale-like. It seems to go off rather easily, though, and then it gets rather insipid (see some ratings below). This rating is for a can in top condition.

   AROMA 1/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 5/20
austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 7, 2008
Can. Bought at Lawson Station (sort of a 7-11) in Tokyo. Terrible, watery, fizzy, herbal/grassy pisswater.

3.1
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Can: Nose of light malt, clear yellow, the flavor is malty. Nice crisp grassy note and a full body. Mouthfeel is lacking and citrusy but decent. A crispy golden pilsner, seems more like an ale though.

KnutAlbert (6100) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2007
Canned. Rather malty brew, butterscotsh. Not too complex, but certainly drinkable.

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2007
Smallish white head. Light yellow body. Dense firm malty straw aroma with hoppy caramel notes. Dry caramelly straw and malt taste with dry grainy hoppy notes. Clean, clear mouthfeel. Dry, resiny malty sweetish aftertaste with medicinal notes. Nice! (0.35l can from, I think, the supermarket in the Matsumoto bus station.)
